Women are different from men. Physiologically speaking, hormonal differences begin at conception; sex hormones influence physiologic development through all ages from infancy, puberty, the reproductive years, and continuing for longevity. A man and a woman can both become body builders, but the differences in each one’s musculature, skeletal physiology or neurologic physiology will remain different.

This means that the higher the star rating a plan receives, the more likely you are to receive the care you need, when and where you need it - and most of all, you are more likely to be satisfied with your plan.
